Get the Look: Vintage Volume

Big hair never goes out of style – you can be assured of that! From tumbling barrel curls with added OOMPH, to gritty textures with plenty of body, be sure to wear big hair with plenty of confidence!

This season, the latest volume styles have a 60’s vibe. Think beehive-pre-hive and you’ll get the picture! The difference between this traditional look and the 2016 version is how the hair is dressed out. You’ll still need a backcombing brush for sure, but at the roots add a sleeker more modern texture with a gel or pomade – you want to combine wet-look roots with textured lengths.

Inspired by the gorgeous Blake Lively, we have created a simple tutorial, showing you how to achieve this look in a matter of moments. The best thing is that there are no styling tools (like irons or tongs) required, so you can achieve this at work, before heading on a well deserved night out!

Before you begin you will need the following:

  • Paddle brush
  • Backcombing brush
  • Narrow hairband
  • Finishing spray like I.C.O.N. Done
  • Hair smoothing pomade like I.C.O.N. Allow

Our model (Ivy) was wearing 75x 50cm Great Lengths hair extensions.
